Mark Cunningham/Getty ImagesDetroit Tigers announcersMario Impemba and Rod Allen were reportedly involved in a physical altercation Tuesday following the Tigers' 8-3 road win over the Chicago White Sox.According to The Athletic's Katie Strang Scott Schebler Jersey , Fox Sports Detroit sent Impemba and Allen home after the incident and replaced them withMatt Shepard and Kirk Gibson in the booth for Wednesday's game.Sources told Strang there has been "simmering tension" between Impemba and Allen due to a "clash of personalities."One source referred to them as an "odd couple." Another source said they had "not seen eye-to-eye for a long time."Fox Sports Detroit general manager Greg Hammaren released the following statement regarding the incident, but he did not provide specifics: "My only comment is this we are addressing an internal matter and we will not have any further comment at this time."The 55-year-old Impemba is a Detroit native who has been the Tigers' play-by-play announcer for Fox Sports Detroit since 2002.Allen, 58, is a former MLB outfielder who appeared in 31 career games for the Seattle Mariners, Tigers and Cleveland Indians.He joined Fox Sports Detroit in 2003 and has been one of a handful of former players to work alongside Impemba as a color analyst.Fox Sports Detroit has yet to announce if Impemba or Allen will be subject to any discipline beyond missing Wednesday's game. The St. Louis Cardinals finished July with a 7 ½-game deficit in the NL Central. They were still in the race for a wild card, but after trading outfielder Tommy Pham to Tampa Bay http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-cliff-pennington-jersey , they didn’t seem like a team that was on the verge of making a serious run at the postseason.Then the Cardinals began playing some of their best baseball of the year.St. Louis is 14-4 this month, and even after a loss to Milwaukee on Sunday, the Cardinals are just four games behind the division-leading Cubs. Philadelphia (68-56) and Colorado (68-56) lead the race for the National League wild cards, with Milwaukee (69-57) percentage points behind and St. Louis only a half-game back.The Cardinals took advantage of a soft spot in their schedule, beating up on the Marlins and Royals earlier this month. But over the past week, they also went 5-2 against the Nationals and Brewers. So far in August George Foster Jersey , St. Louis leads the NL in batting average, on-base percentage and ERA. Matt Carpenter has hit 14 home runs since the All-Star break and leads the NL with 33.It’s been just over a month since the Cardinals fired manager Mike Matheny and replaced him on an interim basis with Mike Shildt. St. Louis has plenty of challenges ahead — its next six games are on the road against the Dodgers and Rockies — but the Cardinals have done enough to climb clearly into contention in the wild race for the NL’s postseason spots.Elsewhere around the majors:RISING STARRonald Acuna Jr. is showing why he was considered one of the game’s top prospects coming into the season. The 20-year-old Atlanta outfielder is hitting .355 with 12 homers and 24 RBIs since the All-Star break. His 1.191 OPS over that span is the best mark in the National League for anyone with more than 60 at-bats.Acuna hit leadoff homers in three straight games before Miami’s Jose Urena hit him with his first pitch Wednesday night.ON A ROLLOakland took two of three from Houston and now trails the Astros by only a game atop the AL West. The Athletics were actually tied for first before dropping the series finale Sunday.On the morning of June 16, the A’s were 34-36 and trailed Houston by 11 ½ games. They were also 11 behind Seattle for the second wild card. Since then, Oakland is 40-14.DOUBLE TROUBLEThe Pittsburgh Pirates made a splash at the trade deadline when they acquired right-hander Chris Archer from Tampa Bay, but they’re nine games out in the NL Central after splitting four games with the Cubs.Pittsburgh allowed only four runs in that series but dropped the first two games by identical 1-0 scores. The Pirates hit into seven double plays in Friday’s game.HIGHLIGHTThe Texas Rangers got out of a bases-loaded, nobody-out jam with a triple play against the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night. Third baseman Jurickson Profar made a diving stop on David Fletcher’s one-hopper and stepped on third for a force play. He also tagged Taylor Ward Tom Seaver Jersey , the runner who started the play at third, when Ward left the bag. Then Profar threw to second for another force.Some of the Angels’ runners may have been confused, since at first it was hard to tell whether Profar had gloved Fletcher’s grounder on a short hop or caught it on the fly. It was the first time since 1912 that a team pulled off a triple play without the batter being one of the outs.LINE OF THE WEEKJose Bautista hit a grand slam and had seven RBIs for the New York Mets as they routed Philadelphia 24-4 in the opener of a doubleheader Thursday. It was quite a turnabout for the Mets, just over two weeks after they were beaten 25-4 by Washington.
